Don't miss (seriously): Michael Kiwanuka and Nathaniel Rateliff at the Showbox, 10/5

Undoubtedly, you've heard of Michael Kiwanuka already. He's exploding out of the London scene, is up for a Mercury Prize, and has a sound that swings effortlessly from singer-songwriter to (semi-tortured) soul to jazz and back again.

Imaginary Victoria's best of 2010, part two: shows (and other indoor sports)

It’s safe to say here at Three Imaginary Girls that we go to a lot of shows. Sometimes, two (or three) in one night, if there’s more than one must-see happening going on about town. And so it’s no surprise that in 2010 alone, just on my own, I managed to go to shoot at […]

Imaginary Victoria's best of 2010, part one: seventeen new releases that knocked the stripes right off my kneesocks.

I know, I know. Writing best of 2010 lists is so three-weeks-ago. But with such a good year in music having just passed, it would be remiss of me to not to let the imaginary-sphere know about a few of my favorite close-of-the-start-of-the-oughts things.
